Cannot change text color in LO Writer

LibreOffice:, Build ID: 40m0(Build:2), Dutch, -
OS: Linux, Elemtary OS 0.3 Freya (32-bit) (Built on Ubuntu 14.04), Dutch

In LibreOffice Writer it is not possible to change the text color. When clicking on the “Font color” button the color palette does not show up. After pressing the “Font color” button, it keeps loading with no result. I cannot find a way to change text to a color of my choice.

Reproduce steps:

  • Open LibreOffice Writer (version;
  • Enter some text;
  • Highlight your entered text;
  • Click on the “Font color” button;

Actual result:
After pressing the *Font color" button nothing happens.

Expected result:
After pressing the “Font color” button the color palette loads. A color can be selected and the selected color is taken into account.

Additional info:
Also tried these step Can not change default font color but with no result.

Can this bug be fixed please? Or does someone has a solution for this issue (or a workaround)?

May I propose to file a bug report here:
